Filmmaking is an inherently collaborative endeavour, yet authorship is firmly situated with the director. In filmmaking processes with community participants, where content is generated together, questions of authorship are more fluid. How do artists negotiate the ethical question of representation while managing aesthetic considerations within a collective process? This intimate workshop (maximum 10 attendees), delivered by artist Anthony Haughey, will examine questions of authorship and representation in community based filmmaking, facilitating group-wide discussion and sharing of the topics covered. Participants should have a project (in any art form) in mind to enable full participation. Access to the internet is required. This workshop is delivered in partnership with Sligo County Council Arts Service (Invitation to Collaboration Scheme).
